This includes industry-leading solution partners X-Rite and CGS Oris, as well as market-leading HP innovations such as simple spot color features and a pioneering on press color profiling technology that allows for faster and easier ICC profile creation. Customers may achieve precise color reproduction of photos and brand colors while benefiting from a simplified, streamlined procedure with a sophisticated color suite of solutions.

Users will now be able to read color patches and generate ICC color profiles with the click of a button, eliminating the need to send print elsewhere to be read and evaluated. This helps the consumer to save time and money while reducing waste. This novel on-press tool provides an easy approach for Print Service Providers to precisely reproduce brand colors, target specific, color spaces, and generate ink reduction profiles across the diversity of paper stocks that Print Service Providers must work with today when creatively utilising available paper allocations. This on press profiling functionality will be available in late 2023.
